Partin Settlement Elementary School is an excellent school! I have three children who attend school here and I have been extremely happy with the education that they have been receiving! It is obvious that the staff truly cares about the well being and education of every child at PSE.

Children are placed in ESL programs based on a home-language survey and there is no option to opt out of ESL. Most schools do get parental permission before placing a child in such a program and honor parents' requests not to place students. Communication between school and parents needs to improve, especially on such an important matter based on your childs education. I wasnt aware that my kid was in ESOL until teachers conferences day. I was upset and superv of ESOL wasnt understanding and didnt handle it in a profesional manner. All she said was, yes they did and the paper was sent to us explaining everything. She made us feel like we didnt understand what my husband and i read. We know what we read! My daughters education is more than a piece of paper! However her teacher was understanding&helpful. It is wrong for a school to place a child in an ESL class solely because of his or her ethnicity rather than language proficiency. I ask her if we would have marked only english on the survey and later found out she needed extra help would you had put her in esol? she said no. I dont hold back anything that will help my kid but it could have been done more professionally.

I wish the new principal (Corbett) would pay close attention to the needs of parents and students in this school. She makes for a lousy principal. I have had no problems with the teachers. They are fantastic. Another issue is the car rider line. It is out of control and needs to be addressed!

Partin Settlement Elementary is a clean weel-organized school focusing on teaching students to become good decision-makers and citizens. There are many educational opportunites for students here including extra-curricular activites such as cross-country, golf and even fishing. The staff that I have met ae very friendly and passionate about teaching children and helping them to grow. This has been an "A" scholl for at least eight years. I would like to see this school receive funding so that it may continue to meet the needs of the enire student body.

Coming from a homeschool environment i was worried my kids wouldnt like going to a traditional school, but when it came time this year for them to go-we were really happy when they were treated very well and completely enjoyed their year. They have had almost nothing negative to say about the school in general, they love the coaches, the teachers are all generally helpful and kind. My daughters kindergarten teacher will be missed very much, and im thankful she was given such a good start in education. The school tries to organize lots of trips and special days for the kids, even on a limited budget. I think like many schools, a bit more parent-teacher communication would be great.

My children have both been in PSE for 4 years. I have 1 chid in 5th, another in 3rd. I can honestly say that like every school it has its challenges but in a scale of 1-10, I give it a 9 (Nobody's perfect). I see my kids being challenged and motivated to learn and succeed. I see them excelling. I love the teachers, the environment and the staff in general. We are being rezoned next year but I Am keeping my son there. We parents need to remember...Our children will succeed and excel not only due to the school they attend, but it also depends on us the parents or guardians. Remember it is a team effort! Are you a player or a mere spectator?

Hyper-inflate grades to make it an 'A' school. Communication between teachers and home is horrible. Teachers do not do well communicating to parents. The school is very disorganized. . Some of the teachers are verbally inappropriate in multiple grades. There is room for improvement.

My Sister goes here and we are not impressed with them. When we moved form another state we shared that we felt she wasn't ready for 1st grade but they put her in it. Then in May the teachers decide to tell us she wasn't ready and she wouldn't go to second grade. Thanks for listen. Second we don't like they way they deal with Developmentally delayed children. Spitting between two classes and teahcers is two confusing for her and for us.

My daughter has been going here since kindergarten and she loves it. I have loved every teacher she has ever had. They have all made her and us feel welcome and wanted especially since I am a OASIS volunteer. Everyone in the office is approachable and I feel that I can talk to them about anything or voice my opinions and they actually care. It is a great school.

Partin Settlement was a great school and I was happy in my years there. My teachers were nice except for one who accused me of cheating, although my parents personally talked to her saying they saw me do it. Other than that it was good. I would've added another lunch line for an optional lunch dish such as pizza or some sort of hot lunch. The extracurricular activities were fun and they taught you what needed to be taught while making it enjoyable for the students as well.

We absolutely LOVE PSE. The teachers are very dedicated, or at least sometimes try to be within reason or chance to. Mr. Groover for one really gets involved with the children and gives them great incentives for reading and other things as well. I've had my children in PSE for 3 years and we're so grateful to them. My son is an honor student and on the academic list and my daughter is doing great as well. I hope they continue to do this good and more. There's always room for improvement for all of us on every level.

I have twins that have been in this school for 3 years. I had a difficult time the first two figuring out what homework should be, since both teachers were working on completely different plans. Two kids, same grade, you would think that the work would be close. Communication between teachers and home is horrible. Notes are not seen sometimes for days. This school is very disorganized!

For my daughter who has been typically an A/B student, Partin Settlement was very good. She had an excellent teacher. For my son, a special ed student, this school did not do well for him at all.

The Quality of Academic programs is excellent. The teachers are striving in all ways possible to help the students to become great readers. Reading well has become the number one goal of the school. Math is next and is taught in many different forms from games to using numbers in your daily life. The school places too much emphasis on The FCAT, however. The school teaches to this test and in doing so forgets that these kids are all different and learn in different ways and at different speeds. There is a problem with many Spanish speaking children entering the school knowing very little English. This does bring down the overall school scores, but most of the kids get proficient within a year. There is also a high level of children moving in and out of the school district.

My daughter is in her 3rd yr here. I attended the first PTO meeting and was very surprised at the lack of attendance from parents. I understand that we all have busy schedules, but it takes more than the faculty and staff to make this a great school.

Our son attended kindergarten at PSE. He had three teachers, since they follow the CHILD method of teaching. This means they keep same 3 teachers for a few years. His homeroom teacher seemed overwhelmed and disorganized most of the time. We volunteered a few times and saw her and the other teachers' interactions with the kids. The other two teachers seemed enthusiastic and interested in kids. Our son's teacher just seemed tired. In my opinion, teaching kindergarteners the abc's most of the year was inadequate. My son's math instruction was the only appropriate in level. Perhaps the average student would do ok. They had no extra curricular activities besides track and fishing. They also had only one play at end of year, which was put together last minute---only certain parents were asked to help...We kept in contact with teacher on regular basis, she didn't tell us or others much about it.

My daughter is in her 2 year at the school. We moved here from up north where there are no programs for elementary aged kids. Those programs didn't start until middle school. The teachers are great, but I think they are bound to follow state rules for the cirriculum and the smarter kids get pushed aside so the others can catch up. If my child were challenged, she could be a grade higher in reading and math. The athletic extracurricular program is great. Coach Dan and Coach Jerry are very good at what they do and I am thankful for their devotion to the kids. It would be a plus if the parents were more involved or there were music/science programs for the kids to take part in.

My child has been in third grade here for almost a full year now and I am not at all impressed. The school teaches down to the lowest level of student and has no program for students who excel. I understand that they are trying not to leave any child behind but this is ridiculous! What about challenging the students at the other end of the spectrum? They also do nothing for student programs - no music concert for parents, nothing!

Academic programs are under debate. Many teachers are not sure about the 'project child' program. I understand that they have a hard time fitting everything into the day. I see that they are trying very hard to bring the lower level kids up to standard. However I don't think that my kids are being challenged enough. I am looking for a program that will allow my kids to be advanced learners. They are trying out a new system in my daughters classes to move her up a grade in certain subjects. They are trying. The running club/ sports program are excellent. THe coaches are top notch and probaly the best in the state. The lack of parent involvement is definitly a concern. I think this contributes to the number of lower level kids. It also might contribute to the lower grade of the school.
